Script to read users/passwords

Postby mlewis » Tue Aug 26, 2008 10:13 pm

Might someone have a script which can do the following;

Looks at the user database file;

-generates a text file with all user names/passwords (passwords must be readable, text)
-creates two sections;
-registered accounts recently added, since last check
-accounts which have fallen out of registered mode

Much appreciated.

Mike

The passwords are stored in the database with salt enhanced MD5 encryption.
So passwords in readable text cannot be done.
Or you'll need to hack the Joomla core code so that passwords are stored in the database unencrypted (= NOT recommended).

So, it's not possible to generate a file we could use to create accounts on another application?
Or do I need to post this in one of the pro forums I think you suggested?

Actually, I could always create a dummy password for users and tell them to change it immediately. That way, I only need to generate the user list, not the passwords.

So, can someone post a little script that can generate the names from the user file?
